Moose Poached in South Dakota
October 8, 2009.
The South Dakota Turn In Poacher's program, a cooperative effort between Wildlife Protection Inc. and South Dakota Game, Fish, and Parks Department, is offering a $1,000 reward for the identification and arrest of the person or people responsible for the death of a moose near Deerfield Reservoir about October 1.
According to Conservation Officer Blair Waite, elk hunters found the moose dead from gunshot wounds on Friday, October 2 in southwestern Lawrence County. While moose are not native to South Dakota, the animal had recently become a welcome visitor to the Black Hills.
Anyone with information on the bull moose case is urged to call a local state Game, Fish, and Parks conservation officer, a local law enforcement agency, or the TIPs line at 1-888-OVERBAG (1-888-683-7224). Tips may also be submitted online through the South Dakota Game, Fish, and Parks Web site: https://www.sdgfp.info/Wildlife/TIPS/AnonRepo.htm
Those providing information through TIPs may remain anonymous.
